This is a photo I estimate to be circa 1868-1875 of the millinery shop owned and operated by my great-great grandmother, Mary Emily (Conner) Meek in Grenada Co., MS. (Click here to read more about her.)


From comparing the only known photo I have of her to this one, I think grandmama was the lady seated to the right of the post.

But I can't be sure.

This is a Sepia Saturday post, republished on 26 Oct 2013 for Sepia Saturday 200. Head over there for more wonderful photos.

What a super quality picture considering it was taken over 140 years ago!
Did you know that the Meek surname is (also) Dutch? Oldest record I could find is an Elisabeth Meek who had her daughter baptized in New Amsterdam on July 21, 1697.
